Michelle as Mary is the only reason I watch this series, she truly is my favorite character.

I still cried on how Matthew's Death still haunts Mary, it's just so heartbreaking that Dan Stevens decide to leave the show.

Michelle’s real voice is so low and manly, it’s strange to hear her normal sound.

The death of Mathew was tragic..... Me and my husband were shocked when we watched that episode. All of the build up to the proposal and then in just a few episodes he dies.

Michelle Dockery has a very soothing voice. I could listen to her speak all day.

Michelle Dockery is the best crier ever, especially that silent cry. Every single time she cries in this series, I cry, too, because it’s so real. Wow.

I'm reading the comments, and Lady Mary is often described as mean, a "bitch" (I quote Edith), but I think she is neither mean nor unlikeable. I just love her polishedness -- aesthetically, mannerism-wise and character-wise. She is my favorite character, a strong, intelligent, forward-looking woman.

People forget Edith is a bitch too. Even bigger then Mary sometimes, but then, Edith always played the victim and that apparently works.

Michelle Dockery seems like a nice person but god I hate Mary Crawley. Mary is cold and snobbish for all six seasons. She toys with the emotions of several men (sometimes because it was just plain fun) but her most egregious, gnawing character flaw is the way she treats her sister Edith - constantly spewing spite at her and chipping away at Edith’s self-esteem without showing an ounce of remorse.

It's neat hearing how well she pulls off her Yorkshire character accent as compared to her real-life Essex accent.

Never liked Mary. A few likable moments thats it

Mary was the typical popular mean girl of the family. Her family never called her out except Edith. The fact that she did what she did to Edith was really despicable and none of her parents called her out for it and she manages to turn it all about her. She was everybody in that family’s favorite. The world revolves around her, a true narcissist. Everybody else went thru hell and back and they didn’t get so much fuss over it, but Mary, Mary, Mary. Downtown Abbys Marcia Brady. That really made me despise her character.

Since the beginning I've never like Mary for so many reasons but mainly because she is so evil. I tried to like her but I just can't.

I don't know why so many people dislike Lady Mary. She has a sharp tongue yes, but the world has been so unfair to her. Her strong will and sharpness is key to managing the Downton estate. People like Edith envy her, but Edith can never manage Downton like Mary or Violet Crawley

I was always enthralled by Lady Mary. Having grown up with four sisters I was used to cat fights. Her complicated sibling relationships seemed normal to me, apart from the unpleasantness with the Turkish ambassador of course. Lady Edith emerged as the most compelling in my imaginary world. Like all of us they were prisoners of time and place. We are riders on the storm.

I am pleasantly surprised at the depth and understanding Ms. Dockery has of Mary’s character. It proves what a great actress and professional she is! Kudos to her!🌹✨🌹✨🌹✨🌹✨

Get a grip everybody. We are talking about fiction here or pretending. The Chinese word for film describes it best - electric shadow 电影 That said I was entranced and drawn in despite myself hating and loving Lady Mary who never existed.

Good story tellers are able to induce the ages old suspension of disbelief. That's why the same actor can be believable in completely different roles.

One can put a lot of things into a character and as complex as Lady Mary is with both good and bad qualities when you drill down you find a nasty selfish cruel cunt.

I wish there would be a seventh season of Downton Abbey. Maybe they have closed that book and maybe all the story lines had run their course. It's too bad because the series was so popular and it is now missed.

Mary is the next dowager countess and traces of grandma Violet have already begun showing in her. It is fantastic to watch. You can imagine Violet in her youth just by watching Mary.

Mary was strong and she needed that attitude to carry her thru life. She was like a "catdog" or more like a "boygirl" She was delicate yet assertive and strong, all at the same time.

Opposites attract in more ways than one, and Branson becomes the brother none of them ever had. Mary had Pamuk's ghost mortify her every step of the way. And he wasn't even alive.

The entire series was about how Mary and Edith learned to be more like Sybill and find happiness. Sybill was happy and gave of herself, heart, soul and then, sadly her life during childbirth. When Mary and Edith gave more they became happier people.

I come back to this again and again so useful to understand human emotions and the development and maturation of a person. ............. I am on the aspergers/autism spectrum and emotions, feelings and life can be hard to understand and we are often advised to watch 'soap operas' to learn about them ............. I chose Downton which is I guess a very slow 'soap opera' invaluable. I binge watched the series over a few weeks..........!!! Thank you Julian you are a master at understanding and explaining so beautifully what it is to be human (and yes I know it's unlikely he'll see this!). Hx

Love Michelle Dockery. Great acting and casting. Mary reminds me a lot of Thomas Barrow as a character in the DA universe. Initially very unlikeable, catty, calculated, bitchy etc but over time you see more elements of their personality and how they are quite complex people, with good and bad faults.

As an American, it is interesting how different her regular accent as herself is versus the ones she uses as Lady Mary. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was a West Ham fan lol. I guess what still puzzles me and hoping some English fans can answer is the fact that none of the Crawley immediate family has a Yorkshire accent or anything reminiscent of it. I understand the nobility and social rank, but if you’re born and raised in a certain area, surely you’ll have some kind of accent of that region. They sound much more London-ish than being from the midlands. Loved the series, but that was the one detail that didn’t make sense to me

Hi! So, effectively the "posh" English accent (which we call 'received pronunciation or RP)' is not based in any region- and you'd expect is from ALL posh people regardless of where they are from. I've even met posh Scots who have them! You might think of it as a London accent because there are similar accents around there (RP is most similar to Oxfordshire), and lots of posh people live in London- but it doesnt sound like a proper London accent. I have an RP accent, with a bit of "london"- where I've lived all my life. But another londoner will sound less similar than someone who lives up the other end of the country. It's one of the reasons why the class system is still such a big problem for us. In any situation people will assume that I'm well educated- others get the opposite.

Lady Mary spent a long time looking for a mate. I have found the perfect mate for her - a mate that a woman of her personality deserves ---- Sheldon Cooper.

As millions of others who followed the lives of the Crawley's. Michelle's role as Mary was passionate to follow . I especially appreciated her speech, that was such an important part of her character. When I heard her Sussex accent , it didn't make sense that an actress with her beauty would not get rid of the dropped T's and the uneducated twang on 'say' , 'over' and more. I compared her acting ,physical allure, to Vivian Leigh who spoke beautifully . England's young people of today Prefer to keep their own personalities intact . I am too old for todays habits.

I love the poetic justice of the fact that in the end Edith married a marquess, and so outranked even her father, and Mary married a used car salesman.

I like her character because she's not a naturally "likable" character if that makes sense. It's so nice to see a protagonist be portrayed with both negative and positive traits. Yes, she's a flawed character, but she has distinct individuality.

I only ever watched the trailer for the film in german, so I cannot say anything about Edith. But Mary's voice in what I saw of it has the right range. Not that this surprised me, given who is doing her german voice.

I like Mary... however.... I do hate what she did to Edith in series 6. They were both at each other’s throats in the first series and I didn’t care for that. Edith writing to the ambassador annoyed me. But when Tom yelled at her and Edith called her a bitch... I just thought she deserved that.... but I liked her relationship with Anna and how she tried to fix things with Bertie and Edith...
Raephaele Masirnille
I don't understand why pretty much every man that meets Mary Crawly falls for her. She is not attractive, at all, and her personality leaves a lot to be desired. She is so pale she probably glows in the dark. But I do find Michelle Dockery pretty in other roles...its weird. And Michelle is great in the role. Sybil was the beauty in that family.

Mary is played so perfectly by Michelle that you have such love for her strong will and dry wit yet she's also been incredibly unlikable at times. I did adore her and Mathew. She was very popular with men and this was hard for Edith. Sybil was my favourite though.
